Test Prep Vocabulary Bundle
This test preparation packet practices vocabulary questions found on standardized tests. This set practices understanding the meanings of synonyms and antonyms to determine word meaning. Included in the packet are fifteen paragraphs (five pages with three questions on each) which ask the student to determine word meaning by finding either a synonym or antonym for the word.
Most of the questions are for synonyms, as that is the case on the standardized tests. A few of the questions contain “NOT” questions.
We practice synonyms and antonyms throughout the year. Most of our practice is not in a test format. The study of synonyms is an important vocabulary building practice.
An additional format is included with 2 answer sheets (one asks the students to explain their thinking in addition to giving their answer). This format can be used either as a scavenger hunt or as task cards.
I may have the students complete both formats – one over the course of five weeks and one all at once at the end.
I plan to use these sheets one per week for the five weeks before our STAAR test. This way they will have recurring practice of the skill.
This product is for grades 3 – 5.
